Since it doesn't seem that there will be any latecoming entries, I think this is a good point to close the contest. :mower:

Wonderful! Each so eerie, haunting in their own way.

I've read and re-read them so many times now that picking one is tough.

But, the one which touched me the most, where I honestly 'Heard" the conversation in my head is Interior of a heart by Aurélie. For that it receives my vote.

I printed the entire thread out the day J'ohn posted it, but didn't have time to give these stories the attention they deserved until today, when two whole hours suddenly dropped into my lap. (Ah, the perks of being a docent at an out-of-the-way museum. :) )

All were wonderful. Talashar's entry was vivid and creepy, River's gave me a previously unknown perspective on Achenar as friend to those fascinating little creatures. Wanais's entry brought forth some thought-provoking ideas about Atrus and Yeesha which I later discussed at length with another Myst fan. Ti'ana Luthien's story expressed exactly the emotions players across the Mystverse must have felt on learning the truth.

My final vote goes to Korora's entry, Jakûp (excuse me if I've misspelled, couldn't figure out quite how to reproduce it) because of its truly unique perspective and humor.

Hiy-Hoe, by River, wins my vote- fascinating view on Achenar, the mangree, and more.

All entries were exceptional, and it was very hard to pick one.

I vote for Aurelie's Interior of the Heart. There were many very good entries this time, making it hard to choose. But this piece had a special ring to it; like a very well formed, single note, on a flute.

Well, as usual I'd like to prolong the voting even more, but it doesn't seem that there will be an influx of new votes, so...

Congratulations to Aurelië for the Interior of a Heart! :)

[Edit: It seems that few votes is no reason why one can not miscount! :) :laugh:]

Not even all the Challenge writes voted (Korora... :) ) so how can we expect the general populace to express interest. Ah well, I shall continue to enter the challenges whether or not our board shows anymore interest than usual, I like the inspiration they charge in me :laugh: . J'ohn, I truly appreciate your continued effort in keeping these alive.

Congrats Aurelié. A very nice entry indeed as were they all. Come up with a good!

But River, you must agree that this time there were at least enough entries, and excellent entries at that (your's were one of them).

Congrats, Aurelie, a well-deserved winner! And thanks Joh'n for keeping up the challenges!

My internet's been down, so I didn't see this thread until today. Thanks, everyone! And especially to J'ohn for keeping this series going. As River has said, it's a great source of inspiration.
